The PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) says obesity among our children is on the rise. A study by National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) indicates that obesity for children ages 2 to 19 is increasing. What are we doing to our children? It is one thing for an adult to live a style that leads to obesity but to do this to our children is wrong! We know that sweets, sugar, salts, fried foods and processed foods (most of what Americans eat) is the cause. Take control back of your shopping and kitchens! Buy more fruits and vegetables, buy organics, Don’t buy processed (frozen, canned or boxed) and stop frying foods. Reduce drastically the amount of fast foods in your children’s diets. If you don’t, they will be burdened with weight problems their entire lives.

Obesity leads to many diseases like High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol issues, Heart disease, cancer and Diabetes. These are the top killers of Americans. Who will protect your children from these killers if you don’t? Having these conditions requires medication which leads to many other side effects.
